Family

This is a three panel painting I did in 2006. It was part of a collection of paintings I showed at Dar Al-Funoon Gallery that same year. I don’t remember the title or dimensions. I don’t even remember the title of that exhibition. Yes, I’m shit I know. This particular painting I love because it’s not just merely a portrait of a woman gazing out at the viewer. There’s more happening and I enjoyed working on the panoramic composition. Also, the fact that the bowl of apples is in the corner feels like it is being punished for being a bad, bad bowl. Lastly, there is a brother among these sisters. And despite being quite effeminate, reminds me of one of my brothers.
